Personal Injury Trial Lawyer - Certified Mediator
HELPING THE SERIOUSLY INJURED, ABUSED OR NEGLECTED.
Since the age of 12 I knew that I wanted to practice personal injury law and help those who have been injured by others. Much of my practice is devoted to representing individuals who have been hurt or injured through no fault of their own by reckless drivers, negligent companies, substandard medical practices, and careless landowners.
I understand well what it is like to work in construction and other dangerous occupations, having been a construction worker myself during my college years. In the past four decades I have been privileged to represent many clients and their families injured as the result of companies putting profits ahead of worker safety.
The trust that client’s place in me and this firm is gratifying. I am proud to have been able to make a significant difference in the lives of many clients when help was most needed.
If I can be of service to you, please call me at your convenience. You can reach me at my direct line: 502-694-9960

What Client's Say
Or, request to Schedule Your Case review Using The Form Below. I offer a free consultation, and as I accept injury cases on a contingency fee basis, there is no fee for us unless and until I am are successful in recovering compensation for you.
What is meant by “negligence?”
“Negligence” is defined in the law as the violation of a duty which is owed to another. In medical and dental negligence cases, it is the deviation from the expected standard of care of a reasonable competent practitioner under similar circumstances.
Who Can Be Held Responsible for My Injuries?
If someone has violated a duty owed to you and that violation has caused you injury, that person can be held responsible for your damages which may include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
How do I know if I have a Personal Injury claim?
Not all injuries are the result of the negligence of someone else. Consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer, preferably one who actually goes into court, will help you decide if there is a viable case.
What are “damages,” and can I seek them in my Personal Injury claim?
“Damages” can include past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and, if the injury is to a spouse or child, loss of consortium (loss of love and affection and potentially loss of income)..
Do I have to visit a medical doctor?
.If you are injured through no fault of your own, you should seek medical attention immediately and diligently follow the recommendations of your physician. In matters involving traumatic brain injury, this treatment may include testing by a neuropsychologist and therapy by a mental health professional
How Will I Be Kept Informed about My Case?
The attorney you hire to represent you in your personal injury case should keep you up to date on the progress of your case. I will copy my clients on important communications and if the client has e-mail access, I will communicate by email. Litigation can take time, especially if the client has ongoing medical issues which need to be addressed in order to fully assess the extent of damage.
Will my case go to trial?
A high percentage of cases, perhaps eighty percent (80%), are settled before trial. However, whether a case settles and the amount for which it may settle depends on whether the lawyer involved will go to trial. Insurance companies know what lawyer will try a case and what lawyer will just take on cases to settle. The willingness of a lawyer to go to trial often will cause the case to settle.
The insurance company said I didn’t need an attorney — is that true?
Rarely will a case be resolved with an insurance company without the injured person being represented by an attorney for the amount which could have been recovered with the assistance of an attorney. If an insurance company tells you that you do not need a lawyer—you probably do. If after review of the case, I feel that a potential client can realize a fair settlement with out my help, I tell the person to see that they can negotiate and to call me if they need my help later.
The person that caused my injury is claiming that it was my fault, what do I do?
If the person responsible for causing your injuries claims the accident was your fault, have a qualified personal injury attorney review the facts and advise you.
What Happens if I’m Partially at Fault for the Accident?
In some cases, you may be found to be partially at fault for the accident causing you injuries. Most states, including Indiana and Kentucky allow juries to “apportion” fault between the parties to the litigation. In other words, a jury (or in settlement negotiations) there can be a division of the fault and any fault attributed to you, the injured party, will diminish or reduce the amount of money you can recover by the same percentage.
What if I’ve already taken steps independently?
Unless a settlement has been finalized, it is never too late to seek legal advice, even if you have communicated independently with the insurance company. However, it is always better to seek legal advice sooner than later.
How much time do I have after my accident to decide whether or not to sue?
In every state there are “Statutes of Limitation or Limitations of Action” which dictate how long after an accident or injury you may have to file a lawsuit. These laws provide that if a lawsuit is not filed within that time limit, your claim will be lost. It is NEVER a good idea to try to determine these deadlines by looking on the internet. It is much better to consult a qualified personal injury attorney to discuss your potential case fully so that determination can be made.
How long will it take to resolve my Personal Injury claim?
Your personal injury claim will be resolved when several factors are determined. I tell any new prospective client that I do not get in a hurry to resolve my clients’ cases. First, I want to know that the client has recovered from the injuries to the fullest extent possible. If the client has a permanent condition that won’t get any better, I want to know that. Only the treating doctors can make that determination. There may need to be conferences with expert witnesses and medical doctors which need to be scheduled. Each case has its own timeline so that no set time-frame can be determined at the beginning of a case. The case will be resolved when it is ready to be resolved. Any other assurance is not being transparent.
Is Filing an Injury Lawsuit Always Necessary?
Filing a lawsuit in a personal injury case is not always necessary depending on the extent of injuries and the statute of limitations of the state where the injury occurred. many cases can be settled before a lawsuit is filed..
